I have been working with Photoshop CC 2014 (32 bit) on my PC (Windows 7 Enterprise) for a couple of months. I was using the character map to copy symbols (simple stuff, greek letters mainly!) into graphs using Photoshop. For some reason, this has stopped working for me since a couple of weeks ago: every time I copy a delta symbol, I get a "d". I was trying to copy directly from Microsoft Word and this worked for a couple days until it started copying an empty square. So basically, no direct copying and pasting is working for me now. Has anyone experienced something similar? Is it possible that I messed up some configuration in Photoshop that is now preventing me from pasting special characters properly? Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Are you using the same fonts? Some fonts may not have the glyphs.
Hi! Thanks for your comment. I was using Times New Roman or Arial, and that didn't work, I checked and now changed it to Symbol (as in the character map), and they do copy correctly! I can't believe the solution was so simple (and how I didn't remember how I was doing it before). Thank you very much!
